Arsenic content in rice--what to do?

Rice is contaminated with arsenic according to this comprehensive study:

The FDA basically says that it's not an immediate risk which is anything but assuring, since from consuming rice and getting all the arsenic you'll inevitably reduce your life expectency.

I had recently transitioned into using organic brown rice as a staple in my diet, and now its recommended not to consume brown rice at all.

Does this mean I should transition into eating organic white rice instead?

What about quinoa? Does anyone have statistics on arsenic levels in quinoa? The article unfortunately says there isn't any data on Quinoa, though it suggests that the arsenic levels are lower.

Where I live, there is arsenic in the water, as well as uranium. Very few people make it to maximum life expectancy. You cannot avoid all things that will take a few days off your life. At this moment you have something like 200,000 cancer cells in your body. If your immune system is working well you should be okay. Ground water contains a whole encyclopedia of minerals, amoebas and other things in quanteties too small to do you any harm. Also, most people dye from chronic illnesses which they have now but do not know about. All we are is dust in the wind.

I won't stop eating brown rice because if this.
